The U.S. Consulate in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, does NOT process any nonimmigrant or immigrant visas. Visa candidates will need to apply at the U.S. Embassy in London

Why not?
Most U.K. citizens are allowed to visit the U.S. for a duration of up to 30 days without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), and therefore, the demand does not justify it.
